Mama’s Watching by Gary L   Suddath

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Mama bear and her cubs had been run up a tree by a very aggressive male. I wish I had got a shot of him but was movin to quick for the low light in the woods. The bear seemed more abundant in the Cove this year. Bears are wild animals and should be treated with respect. The large male wasn’t too tolerable of anything, and could have attacked at any moment. You may see a dozen bears in the Cove that pay you no mind, but it just takes one like the aggressive male to kill you. The day I made this I had seen 11 different bear….Black Bear, ursus americanus… ….Shot was taken in Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park
